… High to very high fire danger expected today…
In the wake of a warm front… temperatures today will rise into
the 60s under generally sunny skies. Wind will pick up this
afternoon and increase to 10 to 15 mph… with occasional gusts to
15 and 25 mph. The sun… wind… and warmer temperatures will bring
relatively drier air to the region.
The combination of these conditions means that fires will start
easily from most causes. They could spread rapidly… increase in
intensity… and become difficult to control. Open burning is
discouraged and potentially dangerous. In Ohio… burning is
prohibited between the hours of 6 am and 6 PM in unincorporated
Long story short, don’t start a fire as it could easily get out of hand.
